We spent most of today architraving around the four stairway doors and beading the stairs. We have a decorator coming tomorrow to line, paint and cove the stairway walls as its too high and inaccessible for us to do. Looking forward to it being finished soon.

Lounge wallpaper

Finished wallpapering one of the lounge walls, just got to finish the chimney and then we'll be done. The painting is done too and we have sofas on order due to arrive soon. Just need to get the carpenter to make and install the shelves and we can finally sit and relax in it :-)

We had a plumber come in yesterday to move two radiators in the house. The one above is in the lounge and has been moved from behind the door to along side the outside wall, do we can eventually mount the TV on the wall behind the door.

We also had the radiator in the spare room replaced with a smaller version and moved to under the window, so we can put another decorative fireplace in the chimney.

Lounge woodburner

We had our lounge woodburner installed yesterday. Too late for winter now (its 24 degrees here today) and it still needs to be smoke tested but at least its in now.

Lining the lounge

We spent most evenings last week after work and the whole weekend lining the roof and the walls of the lounge in preparation of painting the room. We actually got around to putting a white top coat on the roof, coving and above the picture rail.

It looks so vastly different now its hard to believe its the same room. Paul and Maz helped over the weekend too and Maz did some gardening, which is exploding with the sporadic showers were having.

Front door bay trees

We bought and potted some bay trees for either side of the front door. Adds a little something extra to the entrance of the house.
